Indomethacin adnimistered to Lewis, BN, and F1(Lewis x BN) rats resulted in
mortality in 4-5 days. Indomethacin was prepared freshly in sodium carbonate
buffer and administered i.p. or by gavage, 0.5 or 1 mg per rat. The
recommended dose in the literature is 1 mg/rat/day. I haven't come across any
report on toxicity at this dosage. It woul be of immense help if someone could
share his/her experience and suggest alternate means to inhibit the
cyclooxygenase pathway in rats.
